  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts

    • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
    • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon garlic
    • 1 tablespoon rosemary
    • Half a stick of butter
    • 1 tablespoon basil

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil and other ingredients, melt butter before putting it in. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Add salt or pepper if you can tolerate it.

    • Had symptoms since I was 5
    • Been on forums since '07, knew I had this since then, received mild treatment without true diagnosis due to anxiety. Diagnosed by symptoms on 4/08/11.
    • Had first horrible flare in 07, bad doctors, had to research IC myself to clue in onto what it was. After following the diet I went into remission.
    • Big flare in 09 due to an untreated bladder infection. Went back into remission in 2012.
    • Symptoms returned 4/1/15. All of my remissions have ended in April-May or September-October. It sounds like a connection to seasonal allergies to me..

    Currently: Continuous Birth Control, vaginal valium (10/6/11), Elmiron (4/08/11), UTA (4/08/11), continuous Trimethoprim for infections (10/6/11), Heating pad, Benedryl, harsh diet

    What I know works: Benedryl, diet, birth control, UTA, valium, ditropan, soma

    What didn't work: Elavil, vistaril (12/22)

    Sounds like a great recipe. I really learnt to love vegetables since IC.

    Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
    Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
    CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
    Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
    Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
    Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

    Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
    Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
    Naproxen:for pain as needed
    Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
    Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
    Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
    Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

        Diagnosed Jan 2013. Currently taking:

        200mg Elmiron morning and night
        25mg Elavil at night (no drowsiness or weight gain)
        culturelle in the morning
        SLIT drops for allergies (environmental) 3 drops/night under the tongue
        zyrtec 24 hour nightly (recommended by uro)

        Also took Desert Harvest Aloe (3 in the morning and 3 at night) for a year and had great luck.
        No longer need them, so I only take them during flares.
